Okay, mostly this is why you should be fancying Porthos (aka Howard Charles), but also it is why you should be watching the BBC Musketeers.

On to the period-attired pretty! (And did I mention Peter Capaldi is playing the villain?)Collapse )

Pictures, I should say, are all from Tumblr and were all found for me by the frankly epic herdivineshadow.

Sep. 4th, 2013

Yesterday, for totally logical reasons that are totally mostly not 'because Bethan is a vain cow', I took a photo of what I wore to work. And then, because the contrast between that and what I changed into after work amused me, I took a photo of that, too.

Like so.

Monday. Woe.

And, well, I've acquired a lot of work outfits lately but tend to keep wearing the same ones, so it occurred to me that repeating the process for a week or so would hopefully convince me to wear some different clothes for a change!

And also, I am indeed a vain cow.


(T-shirt is this Milliways shirt from Othertees; dress was, unbelievably, fifteen euros in an appallingly posh Parisian dress shop two streets from my uni. I'm still a little convinced it was labelled in error. Note the Gwen Cooper boots, because I'm very proud. The other boots are Doc Martens, for which I blame apiphile entirely.)

Fic: Looking At The Stars

Fic: Looking At The Stars
Fandoms: Marvel Cinematic Universe/DC comics (Batgirl)
Rating: PG
Words: 6374
Warnings: None.
Notes: Thanks to camwyn for all her help. <3 The title comes from the Oscar Wilde quote ‘We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.’
Summary: Phil Coulson doesn’t wake up in the same universe he died in. But he does at least find himself face-to-face with someone who’s had a similar experience... And she usually goes by ‘Batgirl’.

When he wakes up, Phil is a little surprised that nothing hurts, and a lot MORE surprised to be waking up at all.Collapse )

For the record, I blame Cam for this.

"You know," Natasha says thoughtfully, and sips her sixth tequila, "I might just screw all three of them and tell them they will be judged on performance. Then tell them afterwards it's best out of three."

Pepper passes her a new cocktail, because the wait between drinks currently feels like the saddest moments of her life all rolled into one. "If you do, no woman in the world would blame you. Not even the gay ones."

Natasha changes channels on their main CCTV feed (because Steve currently has his ass to the camera and it would be a crime - and not the fun kind - to miss that kind of entertainment), before accepting the drink. "Tell me about it."


C'est une fic.

Fic: If X=Y, Then...?
Fandoms: The Bletchley Circle/Marvel Cinematic Universe
Rating: PG
Words: 748
Warnings: None.
Notes: Beta-ed by my Eric. Follow-up to Rows and Columns and Columns And Rows.
Summary: Jean knows all about doing one's duty. So does Captain Fury.

The SHIELD airship is magnificent: impossibly vast and futuristic, iron grey as a tank...Collapse )

Fic: Like A Nerve

Fic: Like A Nerve
Fandoms: Marvel Movieverse
Rating: NC-17
Words: 3217
Warnings: None.
Pairing: Bruce/Tony (because have you SEEN them?)
Notes: Yes, sometimes I write porn. For fightingthecage, for her birthday! <333 Beta-ed as ever by the very best of all possible alas_a_llamas.
Summary: For Bruce, staying calm has never been the secret.

Just as well, really...

Bruce has become accustomed, of late, to people asking him what his secret is - as if he has just one.Collapse )
Fic: All Your Better Angels (are on someone else's shoulders)
Fandoms: Sherlock
Rating: PG
Words: 958
Warnings: None.
Pairing: Molly Hooper/awesome, Sherlock/John (if you squint)
Notes: Beta-ed by the awesome alas_a_llama.
Summary: Sherlock post-Reichenbach: there's more to death than falling.

Thirty-five minutes later, and he misses the view from the roof of St. Barts already.Collapse )

Fic: The Bodyguard

Fic: The Bodyguard
Fandoms: Sherlock/St Trinian's (and a couple more)
Rating: PG-13
Words: 7754
Warnings: None
Pairing: Molly Hooper/Annabelle Fritton
Podfic: Here by the lovely and amazing exmanhater
Notes: Some missing scenes from Downstairs, in Baker Street, my Sherlock crossoverama. As in that fic, there are a couple of extra canons in here for you to spot!
Summary: After Sherlock's fall, Molly doesn't quite understand why she has to have a bodyguard. But she turns out to be really quite glad she got Annabelle Fritton...

Annabelle Fritton, when she finally got there, turned out to be a far cry from the big butch woman Molly had been expecting: she was tall and slim as a model, with more lipstick than Molly had ever worn in her life and a tumble of brown curls worn unscientifically loose.Collapse )

Fic: I Shall Wear Fire (and be consumed)

Fic: I Shall Wear Fire (and be consumed)
Fandoms: Doctor Whoniverse
Characters: Martha Jones, Rose Tyler, Donna Noble
Rating: PG
Words: 1151
Notes: Beta-ed by the lovely alas_a_llama, who I mostly entirely don't hate. Title comes from this poem by my awesome friend apiphile.
Summary: Martha, Rose and Donna: being a companion and a soldier. The Doctor might be done with them, but they are not done with him yet.

And I"ll find you another time; I"ll love you another time // It"s okay to be afraid // But it will never be the same...Collapse )
